We had a great time at Radioworld this past Saturday with our ice fishing seminar and we’d like to thank all of those in attendance! We would also like to thank the four seminar speakers Matt Pezzetta from Vexilar, Aaron Shirley from MarCum, Simon Frost from Humminbird and Gerry Heels from Lowrance. Also, thanks to Pete Bowman for coming out for the day to talk on the new Garmin echo fishfinders.
Here are some pictures from the event.
Our Ice Fishing Sale runs from now until December 13th 2014. Here are all the details -> Ice Fishing Sale. There are quite a few manufacture Mail in Rebates on right now as well to make these deals even better!
We are always happy to receive feedback on products we offer. We recently received this feedback on the Micro Start XP-1 from Antigravity batteries. They produce a quality product that will boost most vehicles and provide back-up power for your electronics.
Please read below and visit our website here for more info on these great products.
The Antigravity Batteries Micro-Start has been unbelievable. Of course you only need it when conditions are their worst. Last winter was one of the coldest on record and my Micro-Start spent most of that time in my truck. That’s below minus 20 degrees for weeks at a time. Yet, without needing a refresher charge, I have boosted several six cylinder vehicles with no issues at all. I was completely surprised to tell you the truth. I have also used it to get me out of a jam when my cell phone has been dead several times. Ya, I could leave it charging in my truck but when you get out, in my case, to eat at a restaurant, I cant be without my phone for operational reasons. The XP-1 is no bigger than a deck of cards so I could continue charging it at the table and not miss a call. I’ve also used it to run my lap top in an urgent situation. This is now part of my standard kit on the north shore.
Having said that, nearly every guy in my detachment wants one and I’m going to recommend for all the Provincial Critical Incident Commanders this year.
Unfortunately, in this case, the Nuvi could not give me any detour options – there weren’t any ! I knew about the slowdown well in advance, but unfortunately thought everything would be cleaned up before I got there – wrong !
The Garmin live traffic information is excellent. On numerous occasions it reports traffic much sooner than the local news / advertising station with their traffic reports every ten minutes. Sometimes you can’t wait ten minutes !
Looking at my vehicle tracking (below) with my Bluefox GPS Tracker you can see the slowdown where the reporting points are much closer together. If you are a fleet owner, you won’t be questioning why your driver took longer than normal to arrive – you’ll have the facts right in front of you, near real time.
Navionics and Vexilar have teamed up with their smartphone apps recently and this week they have announced a new product called SonarCharts Live. This incorporates the depth data gathered from the Vexilar T-Box into the Navionics Boating App to produce accurate real time charting on your tablet or phone.
It will create or update charts for any body of water even if it is not listed on a map. Best of all this is available at a very inexpensive price tag. Download the app and then order the Vexilar SP200 and you are all set to start making your own custom charts.
Join us at Radioworld on Saturday December 6th 2014 for our FREE ice fishing seminar. We have a great line up of speakers this year that will pass on the knowledge they have gained through countless hours on the ice. Doors will open just before 9am and we will have coffee and timbits available for those in attendance. Please register by calling us at 416-667-1000 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
Along with the seminar we will also have our biggest sale on ice fishing products of the year. Manufacturer reps from MarCum, Vexilar, Humminbird, and Lowrance will all be here to help you pick the right ice sonar unit or underwater camera for you!
